You stand here in the middle of the Independence Square (Onafhankelijkheidsplein) in Paramaribo on a late december night, just as the clocktower of the Ministry of Finance building strikes one o’ clock. The (almost full) moon partially lights up the sky from behind the clouds. It’s very quiet around the square apart from the sound of a cool breeze and a flock of birds hanging out at the Presidential Palace (zoom in to see the birds sitting on and around the balcony). Most of Paramaribo is sound asleep at this hour, getting some much needed rest in order to prepare for the next workday.
